SMASH-E Goodness

Happy Friday peeps!!!!  I hope you all have something wonderfully fun planned for your weekend.  I have no idea what we're doing, if anything, but I know that I'll have two glorious days with my sweet hubby, and that makes it a great weekend for me!

So, I mentioned in a previous post about a Facebook group I joined that is all about Smashing in Smashbooks.  It has been SO INSPIRING to see some of the wonderful pages these talented Smashers have come up with!  I have finally decided to post a few of my own pages, although some of them pale in comparision to some of the beautiful pages I've seen on the group's page!

Here's a page I was working on today. I used a bunch of the different Washi tapes I made last week to help decorate the page. I learned that your tapes aren't going to show up nearly as well on a dark background (like the bottom right page) as they will a light or white background (the left page.) Too bad too, since I really liked the colors and patterns of the tapes on the right page. I have lots of them left though so...live and learn!


This next page was one I just had fun with.  The pictures on the two pages that came in the Smashbook were ones I didn't particularly care for, and since there are NO RULES in Smashing, I simply covered them up with all kinds of scraps and strips and a few extra die cuts I had.  I will eventually do something more with this page, but for now, I'm just enjoying looking at all the colors and patterns!


These next two pages are full of ideas I got from the SMASH*aholics Facebook group.  There was a giveaway and to enter, you needed to write an idea for a Smah page or a whole entire Smashbook theme.  There were some AMAZING ideas!  So...I made two pages out of them...one was a page to write down ideas for future Smash pages...


...and the other was for ideas for entire Smashbook themes.  You might notice I left lots of blank space on both pages so I'll have some room to add future ideas!


The last page I have to show you, is just lots of quotes I had on stickers or found on Pinterest.  I called the pages, "Words of Wisdom."


Well, that's it for my Smash Journey...so far!  I hope you liked it!!

Hi Amy, Thanks for your comment! I will finish cleaning out my craft Room, which should hopefully take this weekend, and then i will be done! Talk about a project! I have made myself a pledge that I will never let it get that bad again!! We are also thinking about setting up a group of us that are interested in doing a swap of stuff that we have, that we don't need, but they still new, you know stuff that we bought but we only needed 1 of but we still have 3 more, ect. I hope that you will join us. I will let you know when we will be starting, and you can think about it. We are just trying to be less wasteful in 2012! Thanks again for the offer of the help on my Smash book! Karen♥

Hi Amy
Not sure of the coupon source...it was definately from either Red Plum or Smart source as it was not the PG brandsaver. It was one of the ones you tear ut from the flyer...not ordered through the internet.

I am in Canada though...not sure if you are aware of that. I am just across the border in Surrey.

My girlfriend lives in a townhouse comples less than a mile away and they recylce all the flyers that are not picked up on Thursdays. So if get there on Wednesday night I can get 10 or 15 coupon flyers. I don't drive so sometimes I don't get there...just depends on my husbands schedule and if our stash is running low.
If I had realized that ivory coupon was in the flyer i would have raced over there. Unfortunately it was a busy ek and I missed it! I had 2 and my neighbour might have one more for me...checked my daughters today... she gave it away or traded it already:(
We Black Friday shop and coiupon shop down by you...we book a hotel and go for 2 days...so much fun!!!

I have had a few posts on really cheap ways to make embellies...
my email is scrappymo1@gmail.com Email me and we can swap some reasonable ideas.
